Having stayed in Jackson first and then moved to Cantiague, we can definitely testify to the differences between the two Jericho elementary schools. Cantiague is a hands down winner. The principal is the most impressive one we've ever seen in all my kids' grade school years! In my opinion, he should be named the superintendent of the district for his extraordinary leadership and spirit! The teachers are caring and on top of things all the time too.

We are very happy with our decision to move to Cantiague. Cantiague Elementary is Blue Ribbon school with amazing and dedicated Principal and Teachers. As a parent of 1st grader we are very happy with this school and can provide reference in case someone has any queries.

My sons come home share their exciting learning experience at school almost everyday. Principal and teachers will reply email personally and in personal time; even after hours at 10:45pm. The principal remembers every single student s name, their parents' names and even sibling too. I personally believe that parents are trying their best to involve with school in this tough economic time. So what else more we can ask for Sincerely Yours

My son and daughter are having their best schooling ever at Cantiague Elementary. Kid friendly environment, personal attention, attention to every detail and most importantly passionate teachers that really want to make a positive impact on their student's lives. We are lucky to get such a great school.

All the teachers make communication with the parents a priority and they provide a quality education. Special education program here is high quality and they promote inclusion, taking every child's interests and well-being into account. The PTA is very involved with creating activities and opportunities for the kids, such as getting established authors to speak at their assemblies or promoting reading programs. The Principal is very personable and attentive to the parents and to the kids. He responds to enquiries and parent concerns right away.

This school is well-deserved one of the nations top elementary schools. It has superior teachers and the best principal we could dream of. The the kids not only learn academics but are given tools how to be a respectable person such as the program, 'Have you filled someones bucket today?' Their are enriching special programs such as authors coming in to speak to the children, community helpers teaching them about safety and Olympics Day which encouraged physical fitness. By far this is a top notch school.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
